Building Bridges: Alice Walker, Dennis Banks & Zwelinzima Vavi on Palestine
Building Bridges, National Edition
with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
Palestinians Refuse To Be âCleansedâ From Their Land
. Dennis Banks, American Indian Movement (AIM)
. Alice Walker, writer
. Zwelinzima Vavi, Gen. Sec., Congress of South African Trade Unions
AIM leader Dennis Banks, renowned author Alice Walker, and South African
labor leader Vavi came together to an international tribunal to grapple with
Israelâs occupation of Palestine, and strategize how to build greater support
internationally for Palestinian self-determination. They reveal Israel as an
occupier, an aggressor, confiscating Palestinian land and removing the
indigenous residents and then when faced with resistance, operating in a
fashion that each panelist viewed through the historical lens of their own
peopleâs brutalization. Dennis Banks reflected on the genocide of
Native Americans. Walker referenced the enslavement of Africans and
American institutional racism and Vivi thought that the South African system
of Apartheid was echoed by Israelâs treatment of Palestinians.
